In order to evaluate the feasibility of the search fund model on Finnish market, the qualitative study aims to identify strengths and weaknesses perceived by potential Finnish searchers and investors. The study asks if Finnish market has enough potential searchers who have the required skills and traits, potential investors who would be willing to provide the required search and acquisition capi- tal, and potential targets to support multiple search funds. The study shows a market opportunity for no more than 4 to 8 searches annually in next ten years. Raising search stage funding is identified as a key bottleneck, which may be effectively mitigated by introducing a catalyst to champion the model.
